Wrong Wallhole shape for default library windows.

Not applicable
I'm working on a model that has a lot of circular windows. to create these i used the "w round fixed 14" window in archicad 15. When i placed the windows initially the wallholes were circular however at some point the walholes became square as shown below. I've tried the other irregular shaped windows and these too create square holes. Is there an overall setting that changes the shape of the wallholes?

Is the wall they are being placed in a custom profile wall? They can be buggy with openings.

No its just a regular wall, i've tried creating other walls and putting circular windows in it within the same project and these too have square opes.

Is there a magic limit to the number of round windows you can have in a wall/project?
I wouldn't have thought so but you never know.

If you start a new project do you have the same problem?
Is your library loaded properly or has anything changed in your library recently?
I am thinking it might be a problem with a macro called from the round window that is maybe missing.
